Insights on Integrity, Power, Character and the Ministry

Character and integrity are the great safeguards and health-giving boundaries to the use of power and authority as Christian leaders in the church. Christ likeness is maturity, bringing an inner security that acknowledges that we cannot reach any higher than ‘sonship’. Acceptance of ourselves with all our strengths and weaknesses, in the knowledge that we are his, and through Christ made acceptable to him, is a route to deep security and peace from which may spring true altruistic leadership and use of power.
